Wetpour Surfacing in Nurseries
The video below shows the installation of a wet pour playground surface installation in Rothwell, Leeds.
Please see video transcript below:
00:07 Hi, you guys. It’s Dan from Soft Surfaces here, and today we’re going to showing you a wetpour installation in the Rothwell/Leeds area.
00:13 The first thing we did for this job is actually inspect the existing surface. In this case it’s a concrete surface. What we’re doing is just checking that the SBR sub-base is okay to be applied on top of that existing flooring.
00:24 Once it’s given the all thumbs-up, the SBR base is then prepared to be placed over the existing surface. This is the base that then the wetpour is applied on to afterwards.
00:34 After the SBR base is placed, the graphics are laid in place and the wearing course is actually then applied. As you can see, these are graphics that we’re going to be installing.
00:41 And now for the completed project installed. As you can see, it looks absolutely brilliant for a child, whilst keeping them safe whilst they’re playing, and obviously gives them educational games with the numbers to be playing on too, with some you know nice animals on there as well.
00:57 Thanks a lot for watching, guys, and I’ll see you guys later.
